Suntory Japanese Whisky Tasting at Arkwrights – Japanese Whisky News


In our quest to bring you new and interesting whiskies to try we are hosting our first ever Japanese whisky tasting.  On Wednesday 9th June Zoran Peric, Brand Ambassador for Cellar Trends, will be coming along to present whiskies from the Suntory range, and if you’ve never tasted Japanese whisky before then this is your ideal opportunity to see why whisky from Japan has grown so much in popularity in recent years.

Suntory have two distilleries – Yamazaki (founded in 1923) and Hakushu – from which they produce a range of single and blended malt whiskies.  Whilst the basic method of whisky production is similar in Japan to Scotland, in that they double distil in pot stills, the Suntory distilleries have some fascinating variations in production.  For example, at the Yamazaki distillery they have 6 different types of pot still and use many variations of barrels – including one made from the Japanese Mizunara tree.

These type of variations, along with a mild climate, result in a distinctive style of sweet and elegant whisky that we think you will enjoy sampling – so come along and give them a try!

*How to book*

The tasting will be at Stanton House Hotel, Stanton Fitzwarren (, and will commence at 7.00 for 7.30pm. Tickets for the event are priced at just £10.00, and this includes a discount of £3 against a bottle of one of the featured whiskies if bought or ordered on the night of the tasting.

Most, if not all, of the whiskies tasted will be available to purchase on the night. We accept cash, credit/debit card or cheques.

Tickets are limited, and allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. To buy them just log on to and place an order for the number you require, or telephone us on (01793) 765071, or call in and see us at Arkwrights, The Dormers, Highworth, Wiltshire. Admission to the tasting is by ticket only, and Arkwrights reserve the right to restrict the number of tickets per person.
